WELCOME!  I have another super easy Easter Treat for you today.  These COLORFUL EASTER OREO’S take minutes to do.

These Oreo’s would be perfect for an Easter activity with your kids or grandchildren.  They would also be an excellent treat to prepare for your children’s Easter events. 

Who does not love Oreo’s?  Right?  I know the Roark family eats tons of these delicious cookies.  Every day you can find at least one of my teens with Oreo’s and a big glass of cold milk.  

How easy are these Chocolate Dipped Oreo’s to make?  I am going to teach you how to make them and share my tips below. 

By taking melted chocolate, you can dress the Oreo’s up for any occasion.  After dipping the cookies, I drizzled different color candy melts on some of the cookies using a spoon.  Allow the chocolate to dry before adding the melted candy colors.  When the chocolate dries, use a spoon and slowly drizzle the melted candy over the hardened chocolate.  

Below you will see the Oreo’s dressed for Spring or Easter.  These cookies are so cute dressed up in their bright Spring colors.

Oreo’s

Any flavor Oreo’s will be perfect, but since it was spring, I used a pack of the PEEPS and a bag of Lemon Oreo’s.  Both of these flavors worked well with white chocolate.  I used Golden Oreo’s with the Milk Chocolate.  

Where Can You Find Candy Melts?

Look in the cake decorating section of any craft store or grocery?  I purchased the candy melts from Walmart.

Should you use the Wilton Cupcake Decorations?

Below you will find some flowers, sheep, bunny feet and the cute little owls I attached to some of the cookies.  These adorable Wilton decorations are for cupcakes.  I found them in the cake decorating section of Walmart.  Cornstarch is the main ingredient in these cute cupcake decorations.  If I were taking these to a child’s party, I would not use them.  They are beautiful and incredibly adorable but do not taste good and pretty hard.  So, stick with the chocolate for kids and maybe for a baby shower or ladies special day use the beautiful decorations.

Tip: The Owls and sheep heads stand up using a small marshmallow behind them.

What Chocolate Should You Use?

To make a good tasting dipped anything, you have to have good chocolate or at least chocolate that you enjoy eating.  In my case, I love Ghirardelli chocolate!  After visiting San Francisco years ago and Ghirardelli, I was sold on their chocolate especially their hot fudge.  Anyway, if you are eating something dipped in chocolate it needs to takes delicious.  For this reason, I am not a fan of candy melts.  However, candy melts make it so easy to add color to any food dipped in it.  I have found that dipping the pretzels in white chocolate first and then adding a little color with candy melts, candy or sprinkles work great. 

Melting Chocolate in Slow Cooker VS. Microwave

After years of dipping chocolate covered pretzels, strawberries, Rice Krispie Treats and more, I have found that the easiest way is to melt the chocolate in a slow cooker.  You may think melting the chocolate in the microwave is easier, but the problem with the melt microwave chocolate is it gets hard after a couple of minutes.  I used my slow cooker to make chocolate dipped Oreo’s.

THE BEST CHOCOLATE DIPPING MELTING TIP!  

I used 2 cups of Ghirardelli White Chocolate

  • One bag Ghirardelli White & Milk Chocolate Chips

  • 1 tablespoon of shortening.

THE BEST CHOCOLATE DIPPING MELTING TIP!

  • Use wide mouth MASON JARS, one per different type of chocolate, candy melts or Almond Bark and add the chips to the Mason Jars.  

  • Place the jars in a slow cooker.  

  • Fill the slow cooker with hot water half way up the Mason Jars.  

  • Do not get any water inside the Mason Jars on the chocolate.  

  • Turn the slow cooker on high

  • Do not cover the slow cooker with the lid or anything else.  Moisture from the lid will drip on the chocolate. 

  • The chocolate will be totally melted after 30 minutes.  

  • Once the chocolate melts, turn the slow cooker to low.  

  • The chocolate will keep drizzle consistency for at least an hour.  

If you are in a hurry, melt the chocolate jars in the microwave for one minute and stir.  Place them in the slow cooker surrounded by hot water.  Once the slow cooker heats up, turn it down on low. 

Kids of all ages love Oreo’s.  Why not make easy COLORFUL EASTER OREO’S?  Try using a slow cooker to melt your chocolate and candy melts.
